Forget all this dieting and running rigmarole.
Let me put my critic hat back on.
I did not care for Prince. Didn’t hate him, didn’t love him. Didn’t care for his music or his persona. Seemed like a cross between Little Richard and James Brown.
Yes, he wrote his own music and material. I respect him, he just didn’t interest me. I did like the crazy symbol and the ‘artist formerly known as’ gag.
I’m tired of claiming someone is so great when I don’t like their music. You know what I mean, the music doesn’t move you. Here are similar artists I neither love nor hate:
Springsteen: sorry, Woody Guthrie you ain’t
Billy Joel: overdone balladeer
Bob Seeger: depressing
Fleetwod Mac: no interest, although I love Holiday Road from the Vacation movie and Tusk wasn’t too horrible
Yes: Can’t think of one song they made
Michael Jackson: not that impressed. Just because you like him doesn’t mean that I have to.
Roy Orbison: boring
Bette Midler: maybe if I was 87 year old Jewish female from Brighton Beach…btw Happy Passover to the tribes of Judah and Levi…
Beach Boys: no
Journey: chick music
Lady Gaga: can’t name one song….
Captain Beefheart: he never existed
Iggy Pop: he never made any identifiable music
Zappa: same thing
New York Dolls: same thing
Meghan Trainor: If I was rich, I would pay you to stop
Whitney Houston: Aretha you ain’t
Adele: I know when Amy Winehouse died, Britain needed a diva, but can you write more than one song?
Celine Dion: Lorsque vous chantiez en français, oui, comme <<Ziggy>> mais en anglais, c’est pas la peine de m’inquiéter. Il y a rien à dire.
Peace be the Botendaddy
